, these kind of massacres and it's funding the nra. the nra is the reason why we don't have change in this country. there's a huge majority of approval background checks on assault weapons ban. the majority of americans are speaking. >> we had a fox news poll that says 69 percent of the american people support the gun -- the proposed salt weapons ban. there are the numbers on your side but that doesn't answer the question about whether -- you bill de blas yo private citizen, not public advocate, you can say whatever you want but once you blanket yourself in state authority it takes on a new meaning. it gives you more power and gives you this special power to cause people to behave in a way that they might not otherwise want to behave. what if you had a poll significance targeting to obtain legal abortions. you are allowed to rent to them but they had apportions. really strongly encourage you from renting from a woman who had an abortion. >> there is no parallel. huge powerful industry backed by the single most powerful lobby. >> single most powerful is in the nra. it is funded by t
control laws. executive vice president of the nra said the focus should be on making schools more secure, more aggressive. prosecution of gun criminals and fixing the country's mental health system. wayne la pierre says gun laws are not the answer. >> while we are ready to participate in a meaningful effort to solve these pressing problems we must disagree with some members of the committee and many in the media and all the gun control groups on what will keep our kids and keep our streets safe. law abiding gun owners will not accept blame for the acts of violent or deranged criminals. nor do we believe government should dictate what we clawfulln and use to protect our families. we have to be honest about what works and what does not work. proposals that would serve to burden the law abiding have failed in the past and will fail in the future. semi-automatic firearm technology has been around for a hundred years. they are the most popular guns for hunting, target shooting, self-defense. despite this fact, congress banned the manufacture and sale of hundreds of semi-automatic firearms and

a larger debate about military style assault rifles. right after the nra's press conference. police commissioner of new york city ray kelly was angry at the press conference because he thought that the nra should have addressed military assault rifles. that there should have been some concession here. he was specifically talking about new york city. his jurisdiction. can we have a larger debate about this? does this law maybe prestage a larger national law. so military assault style rifle bans, these large capacities, ammunition clips. is that something we will see nationally? will that pass congress? is that something that needs to happen? i want to applaud the president for doing something. that something is probably not what we need to do. who is going to be affected by all of these laws? whether it's reducing the amount of rounds a weapon can handle? whether it's the modification of the weapon. it's only going to be the honest, innocent people that these new laws are going to effect. just like you said, tucker. the love these weapons are already on the street. you enact these ne
, the ceo of the nra outlined the essence of the hearing. >> gabby and i are pro gun ownership. we are also anti-gun violence. rights demand responsibility. this right does not extend to terrorists. it does not extend to criminals and it does not extend to the mentally ill. when dangerous people get guns, we are all vulnerable. >> a third of our schools right now have armed security already because it works. more gun laws while failing to enforce the thousands we already have is not a serious solution for reducing crime. proposals that only serve to burden the law-abiding will fail again in the future. >> only a couple of times did wane la pierre get into it with a member of the committee. over the hours, it was a reasonable back and forth. it was not the fireworks that some people might have expected. while he opposes the universal background checks, he came with an argument to make saying over and over again, there not prosecutions of laws that are on the books, trying to put the pressure back on the justice department and less on gun owners. a lot of emotion when other examples were give
owners who have no plans to give up their weapons. even thought about joining the nra. after newtown they started a political action committee to fight for tougher gun restrictions. they are calling for universal background checks covering gun shows and private dealers and a ban on magazines with more than 10 rounds of ammunition which kelly says might have saved the youngest victim of the shooting that almost killed his wife. the first bullet went into gabby's head. bullet number 13 went into a-year-old girl named christina taylor green when he tried to reload one 33 round magazine with another 33 round magazine and he dropped it it and a woman named patricia mayse grabbed it and it gave bystander time to tackle him. i contend if that same thing happened when he was trying to reload one ten round magazine with another 10 round magazine, meaning did he not have access to a high capacity magazine and the same thing happened, christina taylor green would be alive today. i certainly am willing to give up my right to own a high capacity magazine to bring that young woman back that young
balance to the nra. there is an organization called americans nor responsible solutions that they are launching today and they make the argument that until now the gun lobby's political contributions have not been matched by others, that is about to change, no longer is what they write, is that how you see it? >> clearly that's their strategy, but again it all comes down to the sort of nuts and bolts of it. what is it that they are proposing? when you get into dash tkaerbg, if you want to create a nation hal database of people who are mentally unstable and shouldn't be getting guns, well do you think maybe that there might be some objection? forget the nra, do you think there might be some objection to epg keeping -- the government keeping a list of mentally unstable people? do you think maybe the aclu, or maybe some other group, psychiatric group might have some objection to the federal government doing that sort of thing stphao. bill: thing? criminals and the mentally ill can easily purchase guns by aeu sroeug avoid -gsing background checks. >> there are laws who preve
